Travel card will get students to college for less
5:32pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Education
TEENAGERS will be able to get around for less thanks to a discounted bus travel scheme.
A discount travel card was launched – pictured– by Southampton City Council to help youngsters with the cost of getting to college.
The card will be available for youngsters aged 16 to 19 who are attending a Southampton college or sixth form and this year apprentices will also be able to take advantage of the scheme.
The initiative, which is in its third year, offers unlimited travel within the city between 6am and midnight throughout academic terms and half term breaks.
It costs £85-£120 per term depending on the operator and the distance the youngster will be travelling.
